Party Johnson 

Lessee if I can put up a picture without Lieber bumping it down for ten minutes... today's addition comes from Harris Comics editor Maureen McTigue who scored this sketch from our star of the Wonder Woman monthly, Drew Johnson. I don't know what Wildcat has to do with the Legion, nor why they're kids and have to party to that damn song that played everywhere in the 90's, but we don't question drew, we just enjoy his art. Voila...

Attention actresses: You and Edith Head. 

I guess this is "comics-to-film" news. Mike Pignataro of Whisperdog Productions is directing an adaptation of "Me and Edith Head" as part of his work at the Zaki Gordon Institute for Independent Filmmaking -- and the auditions for the part of Katrina will take place very soon.

Check out the preproduction information on the Whisperdog website -- if you're anywhere near Chandler, Arizona, and you want to audition, please get in touch with them.

In other news, Sara and I will be back in Portland soon.


Thanks to local comics supporter Rob Casteel for sending over a couple of pieces from his famous Sandman sketchbook-- he got a Destiny from David Hahn and a Dream from Matthew Clark. See our talented boys, we love them so much, such boys...

If you have something cool one of our studio did for you, scan it up and send it over. It's always funny to watch one of us see a drawing we don't remember doing. Though we remember these two because they were just done the other weekend at the Portland Comics Show. But still.

Change of plans 

There's a brief interview with me up at Comicreaders.com talking about the spx book.

And an even briefer review of the Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating Graphic Novels over at Johanna's Previews rundown.

Blogging will probably be sparce for a while, unless someone else at the studio decided to pick up the slack. It appears that, contrary to plans, Sara and I will be spending the next week or so in Pittsburgh instead of Spain. Maybe more than a week. I dunno. Parker's still going to be at Fallcon in Minnesota, Matthew Clark and Drew Johnson will both be at the Portland show.

David Hahn, Matthew Clark, Drew Johnson, Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack and many other creators will be guests of the Portland Comicon. there's no webpage available, but it's on Sunday, October 10th, at the Rose Quarter.

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, Jeff Parker will be a guest at Fallcon. Details at his blog.

I'll be in Spain, at the Gijon Comics Festival. Therefore, I win.

More links. 

From Johanna, here's a review of Drew Johnson's latest issue of Wonder Woman.

Here, for you art collectors, are a couple of cool ebay auctions from Jeff Parker.

Over at B. Clay Moore's board, we have the cover of Four Letter Worlds, an anthology from Image that'll feature new work from Joe Casey, Andi Watson, Robert Kirkman, Jay Faerber, Mike Hawthorne, Phil Hester, Mike Huddleston, Chyna Clugston-Major, Jamie Rich, Scott Morse, Matt Fraction, me, and Parker.

Finally, if you look to your left, there's a list of the members of the studio. The ones in black aren't live links- they don't have webpages. Matthew Clark doesn't have one either, but he does have an an IMDB listing. Two of the three credits listed are genuine.

Linkblogging: interviews and awards 

My teacher, my hero, and a man who projects the personal authority of an Easter Island statue:Joe Kubert,interviewed at Newsarama.

Over at his message board, Jeff Mason has listed the winners of the 2004 Ignatz Awards. Looks like Craig Thompson was the big winner of the night, taking home bricks for both Outstanding Artist and Outstanding GN or Collection.

Speaking of Craig, here's an article about the musician that made a "soundtrack" for Blankets and here's a review of the cd.

Sequential Tart has an interview up with Jim Ottaviani, writer/publisher of Suspended in Language, Fallout and several other graphic novels about science and scientists.
